How can you tell if your SharePoint server is a Farm or Standalone?

Check the registry

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS"

There will be an entry for "ServerRole" which will tell you the installation type

Stand Alone -
SINGLESERVER

Farm Stand Alone -
WFE

Farm Complete -
APPLICATION

Check the registry

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS"

There will be an entry for "ServerRole" which will tell you the installation type

Stand Alone -
SINGLESERVER

Farm Stand Alone -
WFE

Farm Complete -
